Hi all. It has been an embarrassingly long sabbatical from this blog. I find the choice between writing seriously–a story or a book–and this type of writing, a challenge. I am also not sure how anyone feels about reading other peoples’ blogs when we are all so busy doing our social networking and cleaning out our gobs of emails and Facebook posts. That being said, it’s a beautiful May spring day and I took a lot of pictures of Monet-esque spring flowers. Rather than post them (they are point and shoot, not fancy 35mm) I urge you all to go out and do the same. May we meet in our best wishes and thoughts for each other, if not in cyberspace, than in the fields of our affections and crossed paths. Happy spring! Sheila Lewis
